(I just happened upon a video of a nightingale belting out her troubles away. I decided to call her Mr Songbird. I ask that Mr Songbird sing me a song and to sing for we here at oen to help keep our troubles away.)


Won't you sing me a song or two,

Won't take you long to just sing to me please,

Won't you whistle a tune.

And for those of us here,

Won't you sing we a song,

You help to keep our troubles away.

You help to keep our problems away.

You help to keep the devil away.

Thank you! I have had some trying times recently and take great solace in the jays and squirrel who visit me most mornings. This nightingale song brought tears to my eyes.

Chuck, you are welcome. I just happened to have seen the video of that little guy singing and it hit me too. So I thought I would post it. I am very glad you liked it and I hope you are doing ok.

I also saw two videos that are of nightingales singing and are over three hours long. One is four hours long. I only watched/listened to a couple of minutes of each but the singing is really nice. Last night I went to sleep listening to the singing of nightingales in the trees. It was nice.

This morning, when walking back from the goat barn, as I crossed a short wooden bridge over a small ditch, I was stopped short by a tiny bird flying fast across my path only a couple of feet in front of me. The little bird swooped up ten feet into a bare wintry lilac branch that is one half of the living canopy across the road, meeting a rhodie on the other side. The little bird turned out to be an Anna's hummingbird and I could see by its actions that it was singing me a song. My old ears no longer hear hummingbird voices, but their wing beat is the hum of Om to me. So from 15", I was serenaded in a magical way that had lots of color but no sound. Great things happen here in Paradise.

Beautiful, Chuck. Yes, great things happen when you pay attention.

Yesterday, when I went out back, there were about a dozen tiny birds flitting about on the bare branches of one of the trees. I think they were finches; I don't really know. They had tiny crests on top of their heads. I just love their happy chirps. I stood still and listened for several minutes. Then they swooped up in unison and flew away.

These tiny birds in winter always make my heart smile. And for some maybe disconnected reason, they always remind me of my favorite song by Don McClean: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RqJNpe6otk

Thank you, David Watts! :)

If you are interested, the birds might be kinglets. If that is the case, some species can make a red crest appear and disappear. Very magical on the fairy level. I thought I was hallucinating the first time I saw it happen. Around here, kinglets are upper canopy birds in the summer, but come down and forage low in bad winter weather. We have not had much bad weather so I have not seen them this winter. Watching Nature is like having a soothing massage on my mind.

I enjoy watching squirrels and rabbits in my yard. Often two squirrels will start up the trunk of a large maple tree with one chasing after the other up and around the trunk for a ways before they both stop for a momentary pause. I usually think they are just playing but other times I am sure that the one being chased is trying hard to get away and wants nothing at all to do with the chaser.

A flock of geese often departs from a park a couple of blocks away emerging from behind the trees while their collective cackle grows louder and louder into a rather pleasant cacophony.

The flock then heads for a small pond as I see them begin their gentle gliding descent with their wings spread out wide while maintaining a somewhat misshaped V-formation as they softly descend below the trees not far from where they started.

Yes, I agree nature is wonderful.

(By the way, your goats do definitely look like goats and not like sheep. I hope they were not too offended. Please tell them I am sorry. :) )

I remember what a girl/female/lady/woman told me not long ago. She told me she was inside her tent while camping in the mountains on the edge of the Arkansas River here in Colorado when she heard what she said was the loudest hum of a bee she had ever heard. The hum was right next to the side of her head and scared her. She moved quickly and turned her head and saw that it was not a bee, but a hummingbird. She was able to gently coax the flying hummingbird to the opening in her tent where the bird flew out and away.

WLGF Woman like a girlfriend.

Hummingbirds often buzz our ears when we're sitting in the patio. We figure they are thanking us for the cocktails we provide.

I did see a bee of unusually large size last summer. I like bees, but had to shoo him away. (He was likely heading somewhere else anyhow.)

Nice of you to provide the cocktails. That gives me an idea. If I can fine the old hummingbird feeder I used to have I will put it outside hanging from a branch and it will be filled with a very sweet Strawberry Daiquiri.
